EUREKA, Calif. (AP) — Officials say a powerful magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck Sunday night off the coast of Northern California, but there were no early signs of a tsunami.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the temblor struck at 9:18 p.m. PDT about four miles beneath the Pacific seabed and about 50 miles west of Eureka.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Department, which oversees most of the populated areas near the quake, says there have been no calls about damages or injuries.

USGS seismologist Susan Hoover says more than 300 people have reported feeling the temblor on their website.

Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has issued a statement on the quake, but not a watch or an advisory.

... There were no reports of any damages or injuries though the quake was felt widely and strongly, according sheriff’s and fire officials in Humboldt County, which includes most of the populated areas near the epicenter.

The National Tsunami Warning Center said there was no tsunami danger for the region.

More than 1,000 people reported on the USGS website that they felt the quake. Many reported a long, rolling shake that some said woke children or knocked items off shelves. Some of those respondents live across the border in Oregon.

Jana Pursley, a geophysicist with the National Earthquake Information Center, said that based on the area’s tectonics and past temblors, damages or casualties were unlikely. ...

Yikes.  My hometown is cited in that article.

Not exactly 'typical' to feel an earthquake there!
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Don't know.  But I hope it wasn't bad enough to damage my favorite Italian restaurant in the area, which happens to be in Lowellville.   ^-^

(btw.....normally any tremors in Ohio originate in Kentucky).

Yes, I am sure he ate in there. He lived in Poland, Ohio and his horse farm was there as well. His wife was (could still be?) a beautician in a local Poland/Canfield beauty Salon. The economy/Obamadepression is so awful in this area even the mob has died down but the unions will never go away.

Yeah when this story broke no one paid attention to it because of the James Bond movie going on overseas.

It was my bad, replying late to Musiclady.

Yes, he lived in Poland, and was an embarrassment to all the good, upstanding people who live there.

SO many people were embarrassed that he 'represented' them in Congress.


Oy, the shame!    **nononono*

Bad hair piece has either truly gone nuts from prison or he does not want the local mobs having his body mysteriously float down that famous body of water off of 422 on the right before Y-Town. His statement after jail was that the bad evil Joos control us.
